Partial wave analysis of ψ (3686) →k+K-η

(BESIII Collaboration)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Using a sample of (448.1±2.9)×106 ψ(3686) events collected with the BESIII detector, we perform the first partial wave analysis of ψ(3686)→K+K-η. In addition to the well established states, φ(1020), φ(1680), and K3∗(1780), contributions from X(1750), ρ(2150), ρ3(2250), and K2∗(1980) are also observed. The X(1750) state is determined to be a 1-resonance. The simultaneous observation of the φ(1680) and X(1750) indicates that the X(1750), with previous observations in photoproduction, is distinct from the φ(1680). The masses, widths, branching fractions of ψ(3686)→K+K-η, and the intermediate resonances are also measured.
